Bullet Journals??

Bullet Journals seemed to appear out of nowhere to become a big fad all over my Pinterest feed. Now I am one of those people who try so hard to be organised they have tried almost every method in the book! I have my planner, which I don’t know how I would survive without! I have monthly printouts, weekly desk planners, weekly to-do lists, meal planners, shopping lists, daily to-do lists, workout schedules, tv logs, reading lists, expenses logs, grade trackers and even lecture plans. You name it I have probably tried it at some point.

To those who don’t know me I probably seem ridiculously organised already, but that is where you would be wrong. I have so many different methods of keeping myself organised that I spend so much time keeping them all up to date I never actually get round to doing the things on all these lists! This is why I’m looking to try and streamline this, making a simple way for me to log everything all together.

Bullet journals hadn’t really crossed my mind. As far as I was aware they were these beautifully ornate notebooks for tracking things that I already had ways of tracking. But that’s actually why I’m now so intrigued. I cannot draw to save my life. I just want to put that put there! I’m not one of those people who will spend hours doodling in the corner of their notebooks, in fact, I completely freak out if there are any marks on my notes.

I was trying to find a way to better organise my notes for uni as I currently write all my in lecture notes in a notebook then write them up with notes from textbooks into a neat note form to use to make my revision notes later on. I know this seems like a crazy amount of work and it is but its the only way I have found to get things to stick in my brain. Somehow as always happens when I’m browsing online late at night I got distracted and got onto looking at bullet journals. I would describe a bullet journal as a cross between a planner and a to-do list. The nicest thing about them though is that they are completely customisable and you can use them for whatever you want! I personally wouldn’t use them as a day to day planner as I adore my dedicated planner for that. However, I think it would be the perfect tool to store all my household stuff in that I don’t really have the space to store in my relatively small planner. It’s also far more convenient than having twenty different sheets of paper on my desk with lists on them!

I think I’m going to give the bullet journal a chance and see how it works for some of the more long term lists that have been hanging around my room for a while. I’ll keep you updated as to how it goes!?

Let me know what you think about bullet journals in the comments! Do any of you use a bullet journal? If not would you consider it for some things like me? Or do you like having separate lists for everything?
